I jumped for joy almost right out of my car when the gravel disappeared and a paved hiway came into view.  I thought, whew I can really make good time now but oh how wrong I was!  With the extreme temperatures that fluctuate from season to season in Alaska, the road has these waves of pavement that send a car right out of control. So there I am back driving about 50 mph again.

I did not finish the Alcan hiway until I drove to Fairbanks for the first time.  Unbeknowst to me, it ends in Fairbanks and not in Anchorage.

That is Butch a friend of mine that I met at Chilkoot Charles in Anchorage - another story.

I did not know that about paved roads in Alaska. You ARE going to tell us about Charles, aren't you? xo Diana

Hey, my dad worked on that highway back in the day. :-)

Alaska is just so huge! How far is it from Anchorage to Fairbanks anyway?
